Fashionable women spent hours each day changing between outfits suitable for every occasion, or indeed for different times of the day, and most styles were impracticable and difficult to move in. There was a growing campaign during the period practical dress, but it was not until the end of the century that it gained wide acceptance. For men, the change in style from showy extravagance tp "genteel moderation" came rather earlier. This book charts the changing fashions of the era through the eyes of three diarists who were especially interested in their clothes. The costumes and the glittering social occasions which they attended are illustrated by pull-up scenes to cut out and glue together.
